She Rubbed Me The Wrong Way

She was a blond hot “thang”,

In a convertible Mustang.

She looked at me and I looked at her,

Seemed we both had a little “stir”.

She had that whole package,

With the bod and pretty face.

And when she smiled at me,

I knew she had great taste!

She must have that “inner eye”,

As she seemed to look beyond my blues.

Man! She got beyond my long hair,

And beyond my limp and even tattoos!

Maybe I’m not that ogre in the mirror.

Maybe someone sees the man inside.

Maybe this one can see my inner soul.

This renaissance man has finally arrived.

She drove on as I marveled in the lot,

Of the serendipity at Mall-Wart.

We put people up on the moon,

But can’t return a shopping cart.

I drive on with an inner peace.

Knowing that I’m seen in a different light.

I’m lifted up by the vision of another.

I just wish I hadn’t glanced to the right.

There was that convertible,

She waved and smiled again.

Then she curled that wave,

And motioned me to pull in.

I already had a little gasp,

And a bit of a hard “swaller”,

When I saw that Tang,

At the Rub-A-Dub massage parlor.

It’s no big deal.

There’s not much to say.

She and her magic fingers,

                                                   just rubbed me,

                                                                                    the wrong way.

Halloween Blessed Be Witches And Warlocks, Come In And Sit By My Warm Cauldron, I have Lot's Of Magic To Show You! by Nell Rose

It's amazing the photos you can get on the internet.

I took photos and I changed them with a bit of computer magic.

I distorted them and shrank them to have an unrecognizable photo.

This is for the privacy of the person in the picture.

I went through hundreds.

But I was amazed at the car washing industry.

It is astonishing, how many young women are hard at work washing cars!

I had a black Mustang once, the one with the metal louvres on the back window. The rattling of those is what finally drove me insane. I'm a Bentley person now. Did you know the dash of a Bentley is made with 75 year old burnished walnut? Yep, I told them to plant my tree, and when it's ready, they're supposed to have me on the mailing list!

Thanks for the great music and the laughs. BTW loved "The Commitments" the movie.

Micky Dee 6 years ago Author

Dim- I was confused. Vietnam took a big chunk of my brain, my thoughts. I hid my problems. I wanted to be normal"(?). I wanted to appear to be "alright". I wasn't. I was lost. I did not know what reality was. I searched God. I searched for meaning and got more confused as I looked for guidance from my fellow man. My eyes are clearly on God now. I can see. But in my twenties - sorry my Dear - I was lost. I was spiritual and wanted only peace that could not be found by imitating life. Dim- I wish I could have been "alive" then. My salvation was the bicycle. I would not be alive today without the bike or that "art" in my life. You know I love you Dim! God bless you Girl!

Wilson Pickett is running away with the poll!

That isn't the clearest "sound" with this video - but I love his showmanship. He really plays the crowd. I think most of these performers do a bit. The song incites inspiration for crowd participation! Yo Bro 50!

Micky Dee 6 years ago Author

Now what I meant was- the quality of the video is just a little fuzzy but it still - "goes to town"! Now Wilson Pickett write it I'm sure. The video of Creedence says that it's "Mustang Sally - by Wilson Pickett". But I dug just a tad and this is Creedence. There is another "Creedence" "Mustang Sally" I compared to it. God bless 50!

The "Creedence video has a lot of mustangs on it! But that's definitely John Fogerty and his guitar. Rock on Dusty!

Too bad this woman (real or imagined) who saw through you to your soul turned out to be a "working woman." You deserve a real soulmate, Micky! At least you have some hubpage friends who see your special inner values! They shine through your hubs.

Peggy- I've seen big burly men, firemen, who I respect and love, big burly men with cases of beer - totally too incompetent to push a cart back where it belongs. If I ran the world - only handicapped people could get shopping carts other than in the lot.

I do have wonderful friends here Peg. God bless a friend like you too!

Okay brotherman where did you find that pic of my mustang sally laying on my hood. Yup those where the days, in my 57 Chevy and my 73 Silver Convertible Caddy Eldorado.

The gals sure flocked around my wheels, and a few great spins we got in down at the carwash:0)) Great tunes to add along with the pics as always my man.

You have great taste in woman and music. Peace and thumbs up from the Saddle.

Man, as I was reading this and checking out the photos that old Stones (?) tune was runnin' though what's left of my brain. "My, my, my, said the spider to the fly". Mustang Sally is a tune that has gotten so overplayed over the years the only version I care to hear is brother Wilson Pickett's. Good hub brother! Peace!! Tom
